Navigating campus resources

ASU students looking at a map and giving directions on campus

Everyone at ASU wants you to have a great college experience and do your absolute best here. You’ve probably received a ton of information about all of the resources we have to offer and how they can help you do that. But with so much info, some of it can fall through the cracks.  We’re here to be your virtual guide to some of those resources and to remind you how you can use them to help you succeed.

Career services

Use. This. Resource. Whether it’s to look up different career paths for your major, prepare for an interview or have your resume reviewed, there’s something here you can benefit from starting your freshmen year. They even offer in-person and virtual career advising, and a resume review dropbox for when you prefer to not leave the couch.

Counseling services

Mental health is important for everyone, especially during a big life change like going to college. Keep this information on hand for yourself or if you’re worried about a friend. You can walk in to any counseling service location or schedule an appointment in advance; there is no charge for your first visit. Additional sessions are $15 with a potential fee waiver based on financial need. Group or individual counseling, crisis services and consultations are available. EMPACT’s 24-hour ASU-dedicated crisis hotline is 480-921-1006.

Sun Devil Fitness Complex

It’s not just for sweating it out on a treadmill — but check out the new cardio equipment anyway. It lets you pace yourself against people nearby on the same route, perfect for people who need a push or just like the competition. Group wellness classes are great for workouts and even cover crafting and cooking lessons. Join an intramural or club team, or relax with a massage and acupuncture offered at special student rates.

Student and Cultural Engagement

Find yourself and your community by attending heritage celebrations, cultural programs, or spiritual and interfaith meetings. Explore leadership opportunities through student coalitions that help represent the voice of various cultures around the university.

University Technology Office

Technology becomes pretty vital during college. And when something goes wrong, it can be stressful (printers, we’re looking at you). UTO offers tech support for your computer, clickers and on-campus printing so you can turn everything in on time.

Health Services

Health Services covers primary care, but it also covers international travel vaccinations, sexual wellness, prescription refills and more. They even offer self-care resources to help when you’re stressed, overwhelmed or just looking for some extra support. Also think flu shots, women's health services, allergy shots and lab services. Basically everything but the chicken soup when you're not feeling your Sun Devil best.

Student Success Center

This is the place for anyone who is looking for help learning, studying or understanding course material. Check out a tutoring session, visit the writing center or join a supplemental instruction group and learn as much as you can from students who have been through it before.

Pro tip: Use this service right from the beginning ... regularly. Don't wait for that moment when you're totally lost in a class, bomb a test or the midterm is here.

And that’s not all! There are even more resources out there to support you throughout your college career. If you have questions about any of them or want to share your experience with us, send us a note.
